Few shows know exactly what they are from the start. And even fewer can maintain that vision beyond its pilot. From Shondaland graduate Peter Nowalk and fronted by the immaculate Viola Davis, Murder is a balls-out, melodramatic soap that is keenly aware of the benefits of delivering answers and suspense (did you see that midseason finale ending?!) at breakneck speed. It's intense, preposterous and has helped make #TGIT the 21st century Must-See TV.
